Storage for Artists: Challenges and Opportunities in Post Production Storage

The vast pool of captured and created content requires sophisticated and high quality storage to support video editing and other post-production tasks. However post-production requires streaming video quality and latencies that are very different from traditional enterprise storage. In addition, economic factors favor the creation of more collaborative workflows that span distance and time and create greater demand for networked and on-line storage, archiving working content, as well as more semiconductor storage to speed performance. This session examines the challenges facing post-production storage, with reports from end-users, and storage developers. Find out what is required now and what is projected for the future.
